What a great display.  If my Albion A10 was there I would not be able to park it with the others.  The Albion has a unusual way of keeping up the oil on the chains.  You fill the rear hubs and it escapes from the inside of the hub into a "V" shaped collector which directs it down onto the chains. It then drops onto the roadway.  This was OK in 1916 but it took a bit of convincing the authorities that that was how it was built as under todays laws you are not allowed to drop oil onto the road.  No oil leaks allowed.  I would have hated to have left my mark on that lovely concrete in the photo.
